David Huse - The many-body-localization (MBL) to thermalization phase transition

Date & time: Wednesday, 20 January 2021 at 10:45AM - 11:45AM

Abstract: I will present our current understanding of this novel dynamic quantum phase transition as obtained from a strong-randomness real-space renormalization group (RG) approach. This is for the case of isolated one-dimensional quantum many-body systems with quenched randomness and short-range interactions. The RG flow is qualitatively like the famous Kosterlitz-Thouless RG, but is different in some important features, thus making a new universality class of phase transition.
